The Wife Stalker


Author: Liv Constantine 

Publisher: HarperCollins

Year: 2020


Synopsis: Breezing into the upscale seaside paradise of Westport, Connecticut, gorgeous thirtysomething Piper sets down roots, opening a rehab and wellness space & joining a local yacht club. When she meets Leo, a handsome, successful lawyer, the wedding ring on his finger is the only thing she doesn’t like about him. Yet as Piper well knows, no marriage is permanent.

Meanwhile, Joanna has been waiting patiently for Leo, the charismatic man she fell in love with all those years ago, to re-emerge from the severe depression that has engulfed him. Though she’s thankful when Leo returns to his charming, energetic self, paying attention again to Evie and Stelli, the children they both love beyond measure, Joanna is shocked to discover that it’s not her loving support that’s sparked his renewed happiness—it’s something else.

Leo’s fallen head over heels for the Piper, and unrepentant and resolute, he’s more than willing to leave Joanna behind, along with everything they’ve built. Of course, he assures her, she can still see the children. Joanna is devastated—and determined to find anything, to use against this woman who has stolen her life and her true love. As she digs deeper into Piper’s past, Joanna begins to unearth disturbing secrets . . . Can she find the proof she needs in time to save them?

The characters are well developed but often not very likable. I liked the alternating POVs and watching how the plot unfolded from both Joanna’s and Piper’s perspectives. 

I liked the beginning and kept waiting for something more to happen. The middle just dragged for me. The ending was a big twist and satisfying, but it just took too long to get there. 

This one was just meh for me, but fans of domestic thrillers will enjoy it.
